Verizon Union Picketer Unleashes Profanity-Laced Tirade In Front of Daughter (Updated Video)

(By Jonathon M. Seidl, The Blaze) - Verizon landline workers are currently staging a massive strike stretching from Massachusetts to Virginia. They’re protesting cutbacks as a result of declining business. But as they try to win the hearts, minds, and wallets of their employer (and even the public), you got to think the video you‘re about to see certainly won’t help.

A video was posted on YouTube yesterday shows an alleged Verizon picketer going berserk at what appears to be replacement workers or management trying to cross the picket line in a Verizon truck. The man, however, is not alone. In the video, his daughter can be seen holding a strike sign and standing in front of the vehicle. Still, that didn’t stop him from launching into a hate-filled speech against the other men, calling them “losers,“ ”scumbags,“ and ”scabs,” all the while mixing in profanity.

Throughout the short video, the daughter can be seen standing just feet away taking it all in. You can even hear what sounds like others coaching her on where to stand and uttering their approval.
